At Pipworth Community Primary School we aim to equip our pupils with the essential knowledge and key skills that will enable them to be successful in a modern, complex world. In order to do this, design and technology is planned with clear progression and sequencing from year group to year group. Each year group focuses on knowledge and key skills, which build upon prior learning and we aim to help pupils build up knowledge by committing it to long term memory. Our aim is to ensure all pupils, regardless of ability or need, access learning which gives them this chance, even if the complexity of their needs means they are progressing from a different starting point.

We believe that Design and Technology is important because it encourages pupils to think creatively to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team. Children develop technical understanding and making skills, learn about design methods and investigate their environment and the materials around them.

Through our teaching of food and nutrition, we intend to ensure that children have a good understanding of healthy eating and are able to use a variety of tools and utensils within the kitchen as well as preparing healthy balanced meals.

We aim to inspire our pupils for the next stages in their education as well as for their working futures. As a school, we intend to ensure that the STEM subjects are high profile. We plan to work closely with university STEM students and provide children with first hand experiences by inviting people with different professions into our school during careers week. These opportunities will serves as ‘hooks’ to inspire and motivate pupils and put learning into context.
